The body was cast pretty well, but it still needed a few hours of clean up. Here it is after the first coat of primer was used as a guide coat to smooth out most of the body. Still more to address and the rear wing needs to be added and blended in.
The interior base is one chunk of resin that includes “the engine” and chassis. Lots of mold release on this part, it repeatedly shed the primer even after multiple washes and scrubbings prior to working on it and after cleaning it up. Oven cleaner finally seemed to do the trick and I was able to get a solid coat of primer and black paint to stick, (at least for now…)

BTW it is by no means a dig on the builder, I now see why Shelby didn't give full design control of the Cobra Daytona Coupe to Pete Brock.
